Ramp Closures on I-95 in Bangor

Bangor – Starting Monday, October 26th, 2015, crews will be performing night-time electrical work on the lights located at Exit 182 on I-95. The work will be performed between the hours of 8:00 pm and 2:00 am and will necessitate full closures of both Exit 182A and 182B, at alternating times. The work is expected to occur through Wednesday.

Trained electrical crews will be replacing the existing fixtures with Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting. LED lighting is more energy efficient than traditional incandescent lighting, resulting in significant long-term savings.

To minimize commuter congestion, the closures will occur in the late evening/early morning hours. Exit 182 provides access to I-395. Travelers will be required to follow the marked detour signs. One ramp will be closed at a time with detours provided within the existing interchange or routing to local roads and adjacent exits.
